    • at least 1 of the 4 units (i.e., the Trinity assessments) within 2 years of starting the course.

    • all 4 units (i.e., the Trinity assessments) within 3 years of starting the course.

  2. If these conditions are not met, the candidate will be considered to have withdrawn from the course. Exceptions may be made at our discretion if sufficient evidence is provided of an extenuating circumstance.

  1. Trinity defines plagiarism as “the excessive copying by candidates of other people’s ideas and/or words in the production of written and practical work, and misrepresentation of it as their own; this must go beyond the normal sharing of common ideas” (DipTESOL Validation Requirements, p.104).

  2. If a candidate is found to have plagiarised, for the first infraction, the candidate will receive a grade of zero (0) for the assignment in question. Repeated offences will result in expulsion from the course, with no refund given.
